What is the Soul of Every Deed? When we will be leaving this world, when all of the conclusion, the summary of a human being is seen in the Hereafter, if we take anything the result is normally seen at the end. In other words the conclusion. The conclusion time is when you see the summary. If the result comes out positive at the end, then all his efforts and his striving and his working hard, then he will be successful and he will be happy. But in the end if his result is not positive, but it is negative, then all of his effort, it goes to a waste. So the real focus is the Akhirah, the Hereafter. If the Hereafter of a person is good and he gets success then alhamdulillah. Then just like we are sat in the house of Allah with Imaan, belief, in the state of the fast, in the same way, if we think about it that if our Akhirah is successful and positive, that's when a person can say yes he has achieved. And if we don't have that then he's a failure. But nobody could guarantee this. Nobody can guarantee this. But what we need to do is that all the effort that we are making, the striving, the working hard, we should consider that, in the summary we do not know what is going to happen in the Hereafter but we are sat here, may Allah ta'ala not allow, may Allah ta'ala not allow, may Allah forgive, that maybe we could be in a different place tomorrow, in a different situation tomorrow, in a different state tomorrow. Because our enemies are very dangerous. The 2 enemies. Shaytan and nafs. Our ego and inner self. And as I said Shaytan, he is always trying somehow or another to trap the human being so that he can spoil our Imaan. And he has different and weird types of resources and tools and methods. Shaytan. So brothers. The people who are really concerned about the Hereafter, then they are really always fearful of this point and they always do dua based on this fear. Allah give me a good ending. Allah give me a good Hereafter. Allah's Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also made various duas that he taught us. He asked Allah for the Hereafter, "ya Allah make my Hereafter good. Ya Allah." Because we don't have any guarantee. The salaah we have just prayed. Or the fast we have kept. We have no guarantee of its quality and success but we will know when? In the Hereafter if we leave this world with Imaan, then we will know that these things will help us. May Allah ta'ala not allow. May Allah ta'ala not allow. May Allah ta'ala not allow. That if we make mistakes and leave this world as failures, then all of our actions will go to a waste. Our sitting, our getting up and striving will go to a waste. So the first thing, most valuable is the Hereafter of a person. We look forward to the Herafter. So Allah subhaanahu wa ta'ala, for our Akhirah, where we are to go to which is our destination and our Imaan teaches us this, that we will depart and go to the Hereafter. The biggest point of our Imaan is that we believe in the Hereafter. We believe in the Hereafter. And this is a concern and a fikr, concern for the Hereafter that always keeps us occupied and busy. And whoevers fikr-e-Akhirah is weak, then he is weak in his practice. Whoever has strong fikr for the Herafter, the same way, then his actions are strong and fresh. Remember this point. MashaaAllah there is some things that we do unconsciously. Sometimes you don't have to talk about them. Just like we're revising this. Now you're thinking, "ooh yeah, I understand that now." But unconsciously a person, these things are absorbed and ingrained within him and he practices daily within his life. That's why when you go to a gathering of the Wali Allah, these little little points, he revives them. They're inside us. The flame is there. And he just makes it a little bit more intense. So that the heat can come inside the student so that he can understand. So have you got some heat within that you understand what I'm saying? Yes that's right. You say, "oh of course that makes sense." So fikr-e-Akhirah, concern for the Hereafter will tell you whether you have got it or not. Every human being says, "yes I am scared of Allah. I'm afraid of Allah. I'm afraid of death and I'm afraid of the grave." "Okay brother, if you're really fearful then who will testify?" "Did you come to your Fajr salah in the morning? "No, no, no, do dua for me," he will say "do dua for me," the same person will say. "Did you pray salaah during the day?" "Just do dua for me" he will say. That, "you didn't do this sin?" "Oh you know, I couldn't help it, I just felt like it." "You don't practice the Sunnah brother?" "Uh, the Sunnah, well we don't need to." So whoever has fikr-e-Akhirah, concern of the Akhirah, you don't need to remind him of these things. Every second every moment he will be thinking, that shall I put some luggage together so that when I travel to the Hereafter I've got something. And more than that, He will think another thing. That these are different phases of life. First will come death, then after that the grave, the Qabr, then the resurrection, Hashr, then Pul siraat, the bridge of Siraat. Allahu akbar. My Hadhrat sahib used to say with a long breath that "we are enjoying ourselves here but think about the phases to come." So with a deep sigh Hadhrat sahib used to say this my teacher. That a person realises when he is dying, ask the person who is dying. With ease we stand at the funeral prayer, janazah, oh Hurry up quickly quickly Janazah salaah. This many takbeer. Mawlana sahib, how many takbir's? And do this. Graveyard etc. But the person who has died. He is in that position. So fikr-e-Akhirah, that's what creates the awareness. And If we want to develop fikr for the Hereafter, then go to such a place who already in advance has got fikr-e-Akhirah. Already he has got the fikr. The person already has fikr-e-Akhirah. Then when you go to his company, you will say, "Assalaam-o-alaykum." And he will talk to you about the Akhira. The Hereafter. Only one action he knows. He has no other sorrow. No other concern. So fikr-e-Akhirah, is the most important thing we need to develop inside us and to attain fikr-e-Akhirah, to really test ourselves, "have I really got fikr-e-Akhirah or not?" Don't decieve yourselves. "Have I got fikr-e-Akhirah or no?" Yes or no. Then from my actions I can determine this. Yes. That really to test myself that have I got fikr-e-Akhirah, then look at your Amal, look at your action. Say SubhaanAllah. Yes. Look at your own actions. What Amal am I doing? What action am I doing. If I see that I am not practicing the Sunnah, I'm not following the deen. I dont think something is haraam when it is haraam. I dont think something is halal when it is halal. I don't accept the Quran or follow the orders of the Quran. I accept other things. These things are ingrained in my heart. Then have I got fikr-e-Akhirah? Has that person himself, he has put his consequences infront of him. He can see where he is, then he has just signed on the dotted line. That this is where I am going.  Yes. When he is going even beyond that some things he does, some things he leaves, then he doesn't have fikr-e-Akhirah. In comparison to this is, fikr-e-dunya. Concern for the world. Everyone is overwhelmed with concern for the dunya. Every man is occupied with fikr-e-dunya. Is this not the case? Dunya fikr. Running after the dunya. I'd say even the youngest of children had fikr of the dunya. "Oh has this come? When is my bed going to come home? When are you going to change my mattress for me? When you are going to buy a new bed for me?" Little child is asking. He's got fikr aswell for the dunya. When you leave here and go home, "have you brought sweets for me or not? Where's my sweets quickly?" He won't look at his dad that he's come home, nice safe and sound. Yes. The children even. Because they have got fikr-e-dunya. From the birth onwards we have this, SubhaanAllah. But fikr-e-Akhirah can be developed and generated. SubhaanAllah. Say SubhaanAllah. This is the test. Fikr-e-dunya is there. We are coming with that into the world.  Soon as he gets up  he is crying. Soon as the eyes, are not even, he hasn't even come into the dunya and he will start screaming. When he is born screaming. Why are you screaming oh baby fikr-e-dunya. Where's my milk? Where's my food? Soon as the child has come, then Allah ta'ala has prepared two nipples for the child. Yes because He knows. Allah ta'ala knows that the child soon hes going to come. The hungers gone there. He shouldn't even leave the house. Let the mother give the milk to the child. Allah says that even in the first day the fikr-e-dunya is there. SubhanAllah. Naturally. How Allah subhaanahu wa has prepared that the child has come with such pain and difficulty into the dunya. He has come out of the womb into the dunya. He hasn't even got sabr that somebody should make milk for me or buy it from the shop or will it be digested or not. Allah ta'ala said, let's not give difficulty to the baby because not every milk is disgeted by the baby is it? No. But Allah ta'ala prepared such a natural milk according to the capacity and requirement of the child. According to the months and the age of the child. Allah ta'ala gives the food to the baby. SubhaanAllah And who is giving? Allah who created that baby. SubhaanAllah. Say SubhaanAllah. Naturally he created that cycle and this is Allah's glory. And what is that teaching us? That we've seen this aswell but when I thought about this that this is fikr-e-dunya that the baby is bringing into the world. There is nothing there apart from fikr-e-dunya. Then he will grow up and then the dunya. If there child is fortunate and goes into the company of the Wali Allah, then fikr-e-Akhirah will come to that baby or that child. Or that youth. Even after going into the company of a Wali Allah, very few are truly spiritually born. Man thinks shall I do this or shall I not do this? Shall I go into the dunya? Shall I do this? But the person who has fikr-e-dunya, he will run after dunya. But fikr-e-Akhirah, he will say, "shall I do this or shall I leave this?" Is this right? If I do a class of dunya now, for example, business and cotton and buy this and profit and this stock. And we'll do this and we can make this much money. Then in the dunya people will say, "oooh , let's listen to him he's a consultant of the dunya he can teach me." They'll come to me with paper and pen and start writing the notes that he said, "run this shop, open this business and buy this business and this much profit and this is the loss and this is the profit."  They will say, "yes he is very brainy and intellectual" but the people who have fikr-e-Akhirah, what do they say? They don't say book and paper and pen. They say "open your hearts. My Sheikh said this, inscribe it into you heart." SubhaanAllah. One thing if you take from your Sheikh. Say SubhaanAllah. One statement of your teacher, do Amal on that. I say with da'wah clearly that he has got fikr-e-Akhirah and he is successful that person. Who takes the statements from his teacher and shares them and practices them. So brothers develop this inside of you. Develop fikr-e-Akhirah. You have to make effort and try hard and strive. It is not that from birth you have got fikr-e-Akhirah. Dunya fikr is from birth. We want that we just have this, all the time. Keep talking about the dunya and success of the dunya and the glitter. But the fikr-e-Akhirah. The concern for the Hereafter. Allahu akbar. Very difficult, جاهدوا, Allah says that do Mujaahadah. Strive for the fikr-e-Akhirah. When it comes, then it goes, it comes into the heart, then it goes. It is difficult. It fluctuates. Comes close to you. Then it runs away Then nafs and shaytan overwhelms you. Then they work hard on us. No no no Im going to start doing dhikr. Then you run away from Dhikr. Then Thursday night comes. And the next day you run away. Does a U-turn after that. Starts praying salaah. Sometimes comes, then leaves jama'ah. Sometimes fajr salaah he prays, sometimes he leaves. This not fikr-e-Akhirah. Up and down like a yo-yo. Stick to this action like a rock. That  what is this action that I am doing? It is concerned to the Hereafter, Ive got to do it. What is the Akhirah? Very close to us. Akhirah is so close to you that nothing is closer to you than the Akhirah. Great examples. Hadhrat Ali KaramAllahu Wajhah Radiyallahu Anhu said that, the Akhirah is so close to you that even closer to you than the blink of your eyelid. You know when you blink. The eyelashes. The hair after Mawt, doesnt take long to arrive. Many people they don't even blink and the Mawt has come. I'm sat in here infront of you, talking to you, a few seconds later, gone. Life is gone. How long did it take? Few seconds. Because Allah ta'ala gave the hukm, Allah ta'ala is going to put the hand on the heartbeat. Gone.  Finished. Then our Nizaam, we're going to do post mortem. Coroner says why did he die. What was his sugar level? How much is the heart beat? Why did he die? Which artery is blocked? No reason. Hukm came, this second, this date. Finished. Life gone. Say SubhaanAllah We have to go to the Hereafter. The time has gone. Think. How much fikr did that person have for the Hereafter? How much concern? Did he go departing counting the cash and the notes or did he depart with the Remembrance of Allah? How much yaqeen? Remember Allah so much that when its your last second, "oh Allah then you're doing my Dhikr in the last second when your breath is drawn.  That's how we need to make ourselves. Yes. Your hand is in the Dunya, your heart is attached to Allah.  Allah has not stopped you working in the world. That become such a human being, that whatever occupation of the world you have, but at that time your heart is beating to the Remembrance of Allah. Even if you're lying down with your wife, even if you're lying down with your wife, even the most tasteful, enjoyment place in the world but your heart is remembering Allah at that time. ٱلَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ ٱللَّهَ قِيَٰمًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ   About dhikr first condition, standing, sitting, lying down, do so much dhikr, so much dhikr that the fikr is developed within you. وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ Which fikr? Not earning money. Fikr-e-Akhirah. Concern for the Hereafter. So here Allah ta'ala has linked and connected His Remembrance to His Hereafter. This is the point. Allah says if you want to develop concern and fikr and worry for the Hereafter, if you want to be free from the worry of the dunya, then attach yourself to the Dhaakir. Learn dhikr from him and do dhikr. And start doing your work. Kam te lag jao. Start doing the work. That is the point here. That a person who runs away from the dhikr is he who doesn't want the fikr-e-Akhirah. Am I reading a book? I am just explaining the Quran to you what Allah says. With Dhikr and fikr, why have I connected the two. Which fikr? Which concern? Yes people say, "Oooh I have fikr of the world, And go towards science and modernism and technology and moon and stars. Oh Servants of Allah, Allah ta'ala, the Quran is talking about the Hereafter or is he talking about science and technology? Is Allah ta'ala talking about the dunya in this moment of time? This is what we need to think about. So the Quran always, every Aalim, scholar,  will tell you. Fikr-e-Akhirah Concern for the Hereafter. So the subject in mind today was actually to be something else but this was a good introduction. So the topic was actually, Allah subhaanahu wa ta'ala with regards to this concern for the Hereafter. In other words to prepare for the Herefafter, to make our concern and to earn the Hereafter because the most important thing in our lives as human beings, remember this, the most important action and concern is if you select something in this world is to have the fikr for the Hereafter. Select that in this dunya. Fikr for the Hereafter. I'm telling you clearly clearly, repeating repeating. When you have developed the concern for the Hereafter then your actions will testify to that. I won't see someone then he is running from Dhikr. I will never see that person running away from the masjid. Never will he run away from the masjid or dhikr and then whatever he loves more those people, then he will drag them aswell to those actions. What does a person love the most? What does a human being love? Nauturally he loves his children, doesn't he? A person loves his children the most, doesn't he? Most of all he has concern, a human being, who does he have concern for the most? His offspring. "My son, my son, make dua for my son." And for example, if he takes his son by the finger to the Wali Allah, "do dua that my son becomes a Haafidh, Sheikh, that he becomes a Mawlana. Do dua that he does hifdh of the Quran." We do this don't we? Why? Because we have most love for our children. So we have most fikr and concern for our children. So a person who has real love and fikr for his children, who has real fikr for his family, then he will also develop that fikr in his children aswell. This is also a sign. Then he will require and like the best thing for his children. Let me give the best thing to my children, my daughter, my son, let me teach them the best thing, let me teach them the high class, the most important thing in our life, what is that? Concern for the Hereafter. The sign of that is that as soon as our children are born the father does tarbiyyah, he tries doesn't it. Human being should try his best. Takes his hand and bring him to the masjid. Because he knows that I love my children and I dont want my children to go off-track and to burn in Hellfire and to be burnt. We are going to die. Even young people can die. You can be ill even at a young age so we should try as parents take the ears, take them out from the dunya somehow or another, develop the love for the Hereafter into their hearts. Its our job to work hard but the rest is in the hands of Allah. If he fails then what can we do. We tried our best we should say. Most valuable precious thing so Allah subhaanahu wa ta'ala says, the most valuable thing for a human being is to prepare for the Hereafter. And Allah has not restricted that Allah has created many paths and ways. It is unrestricted. Open plain field. So many paths that every second, every moment, everything a human being does there is no restriction to earn for the Hereafter. No restriction. That how do I earn the Hereafter. I have to work. I have to bring up my kids. I have to study. I have to get a career. I have to earn money. I've got relatives. I've got to meet people. I have to live in the dunya. So all these things are important aren't they. I have to get my children married. All these things come in the way. So ofcourse. No problem. Allah ta'ala says I have prepared such a thing, even those actions can become fikr for the Hereafter. Even through the worldly actions you can earn the Hereafter.  High level Hereafter you can earn through the worldly requirements. Whoever has recited, "laa ilaha illallah Muhammad-ur- Rasulullah," then he becomes a unique human being. He becomes a unique human being that person of Imaan. A high elevated person. Allah subhaanahu wa ta'ala, if he gives us such a vision, binoculars that we can see from our eyes the difference between a person of Imaan, a person of weak Imaan. Im talking about Imaan. Not about Amal. Just belief and Imaan i am talking about. This is the difference between those two people. Yes for example if a person comes infront of you, a human being and a jinn, you'll see the difference. A human being, you will run away from the sin. Same way, a person who has Imaan and one who has no Imaan, massive difference between the two. Massive difference. If you have the binoculars through which you can see the difference, you can see inside them the difference. If you had the eyesight. You can see the reality inside them. The difference. So this is the case. Allah subhaanahu wa ta'ala said, that a person who has Imaan, he is so valuable. He is so precious, his Imaan. His eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, hands, feet, heart, all of these Allah ta'ala says they become nurani, they are enlightened. Allah ta'ala had given the dua, we do dua, Allah ta'ala, give me nur in my blood, give noor in my flesh, in my hair, yes what is this dua? Yes دمي، سمعي.  We're asking Allah for nur in all of our things, in my tongue, In my nafs, In my ego, ontop of me, below me, to my right, to my left, nur alaa nur we are asking from Allah. What is this nur? SubhaanAllah. This is light beyond light. Imaan. Such a fantastic thing is Imaan if a person has but we have to understand ourselves what we are. What are we here for? The person who has Imaan. And if he does one action, Allah ta'ala says, then every other action of his will become an action for the Hereafter. What is that what we need to do? That's what I'm sharing with you today. What do we need to do which is linked to our Tazkiyah. Because we're talking about Tazkiyah, purification. So by chance from the first fast until today, we are speaking the same subject. The khankah is running. Your khankah is running mashaaAllah. Yes reformation. Improvement. One is alhamdulillah Ramadan is giving is tarbiyyah and the other tarbiyyah, also the Sheikh is giving you tarbiyyah. So you've got both nurun alaa nur. Alhamdulillah. Ramadan. And the Sheikh's company. So Ramadan automatically we were doing tarbiyyah. And mashaaAllah, my Sheikh his faiz is also being shared here and taught here. So what was I talking about? Allah ta'ala has given us such a resource, a method, then with that, the human being, all of his life it becomes a preparation for the Hereafter. There is a hadith, this hadith is a fantastic hadith and written in Musnad Imaam Bukhari Rahmatullahi Alayh. He wrote this hadith and he started in the beginning with this hadith. Say SubhaanAllah. Right in the beginning, his first pen, what was he? Imaam Bukhari Rahmatullahi Alayh, after the Quran, then his kitaab is accepted as the holiest of kitaabs. That all of this mashaaAllah, the muhadditheen, they were invited by Allah to write these kitaabs, their Tareeqah, the method, how they collected the hadith, how they recorded it. You'd be amazed that a normal person, wudu, staying awake in the night, so cautious, there is no limit to their caution. The Muhaddithun. And who did this? Who enabled this for them? Allah ta'ala wanted to do our tarbiyyah so Allah ta'ala created human beings to preserve the hadith for us in this day and age. So Allah ta'ala created those people at that time in those centuries to do the work for us of the deen. SubhaanAllah so he wrote the kitaab, Sahihul Bukhari. Nurani kitaab. The first hadith in Sahihul Bukhari, how important it must be that Allah ta'ala selected Imaam Bukhari Rahmatullahi Alayh to write the hadith. "Every action is according to the intention." Imaam Bukhari wrote this hadith, recorded it, we read it. But if you think, why was this hadith recorded. First he said, whatever is coming inside my kitaab Allah said, Sahih Bukhari, SubhaanAllah, whatever you will read and study, what do you find in Sahihul Bukhari? All the Sunnah's of the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What else is there in Sahihul Bukhari? It is Ahyaa of the Sunnah. Sahihul Bukhari, libaas sunnah, dressing, the attire, how to do this. How the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, how he said this, so in that way the Fuqaha, the Muhadditheen, the jurists, they solved all our problems from the subjects that they recorded in the hadith. All the Sunnahs. So he revived the Sunnah. Ahyaa of the Sunnah. Sahihul bukhari. So it means all the subject depends on what? Your intention oh Muslim, this is the first hadith, subhaanAllah, all your actions and what you do. Do you understand? First the hadith and then came the subject. So how great will be this hadith that after that he gave the subject breakdown. In a summary, the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the tashreeh of this hadith is so long.  Ramadan will end. If I start the tafseer of this hadith now, say SubhaanAllah, Ramadan will end and the tafseer will not end. InshaaAllah if my life continues, then we can continue these subjects and share this. Thursday night comes doesn't it in between? So we will continue. So keep this suhbat and inshaaAllah you will learn this knowledge. So what was I saying? The first hadith before the subject breakdown, before the content, the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, that, "all of your actions will be weighed on what? Your niyyah. Your intention. End of story. So then Bukhari shareef starts after this hadith. SubhaanAllah. All of the measurement will depend on your salah, your Quran, your hajj, your Umrah. Whatever you do.  You speak about the deen. Your da'wah. Tabligh. Give lectures. And talks. Your reading. Talking. Whatever you do. Dhikr. All your actions, A to Z in your life. Every thing you do in your life, when will you get the fruits. It will be based on one measurement scale. Your niyyah. Your intention. Say SubhaanAllah. SubhaanAllah. Tell me. It is stated, niyyah, if it is correct. If your intention is correct. What does everything depend upon? The niyyah. The intention. If your niyyah is Saalih, righteous and pure, then your fast is correct. If your niyyah is correct then your Quran is correct. If your niyyah is clean then your salaah will be accepted. Your Hajj will be correct. Your Umrah will be correct. Your ilm is correct. Your knowledge is correct. Your Quran is correct. Your hadith is correct. Your teaching hadith is correct. Yes. If your niyyah is correct. Based on what? Your niyyah. Everything is based on the niyyah. The intention. Yes. Despite this, if you don't have the right niyyah and you do actions, then what does that become? Doesn't matter how much of a big action of the deen, how many people praise you, elevate you, they think you're pious, yes. The Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there's nothing to your name. Nothing. Its all a waste. If the niyyah isn't correct.  So what should we do now? So what are we being strongly hinted towards? Correct your niyyah. Develop your niyyah. Make your niyyah. The first action of a human being, just like in Sahihul Bukhari all the hadith come after, first it says, you have to develop your niyyah. Your intention. If your niyyah is correct then Bukhari will benefit you. If your niyyah is correct, then all your worship, actions will benefit you. That is why despite people learning so much knowledge, the Ulamah go to the Wali Allah. Why have you come to me? So we can develop our niyyah and purify our niyyah so that the ilm that we have learnt, say the scholars, the kitaab's that we are going to write, thousands of books we have written, so much ilm we have learnt, great uloom we have learnt for years, they haven't done anything yet but this thing that our Sheikh has got and he can correct and purify and develop our niyyah, we must do this process. Brothers. Such a great scholar. Hahdrat Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Rahmatullahi, why did he go to Hajji Imdaadullah Mujaajir Makki Rahmatullahi Alayh? Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanwi Rahmatullahi Alayh, he was where the danka. He was the ilm's danka. Where the ilm was vibrating from his teachings, tafseer, Quran, kitaabs he wrote and people said, "why are you going to Hajji sahib?" His Sheikh. Hadhrat Khalil Ahmad Saharanpuri Sahib Rahmatullahi Alayh, come lower than that. The next generation. Why did they have a need to go to Hajji Sahib? To his khankah and sit there to their Sheikh. And do Mujaahadah. Why did they do this? What was the reason? SubhaanAllah. They said we didn't go to learn ilm, from our Sheikh, we didn't need to go there to learn ilm, we went for this reason, so that everything we learnt, it becomes accepted in the court of Allah. So it can be accepted. Hajji sahib, we went to his company, to our Sheikh's company, to purify and clean our niyyah. So the most important thing for a Muslim is what? Niyyah. So Ramadan also came to correct our Niyyah my friends. After Ramadan who will correct our niyyah's tell me? Who? The Sheikh. If you don't understand this point until today then what have we understood? Half of Ramadan has gone I'm trying to explain this point to you. Yes Ramadan has come to do this. After Ramadan who will do this. If you don't even understand this point then? After Ramadan who will correct us? The suhbat-e-Sheikh. Do you have a Sheikh? Do you have a teacher? SubhaanAllah. Sheikh is he with whom you have 4 things, you have adab with him, you his greatness, you have belief in him, you have Aqeedah in him. You have Aqeedah. Then you can say you have a Sheikh. If you don't have these 4 attachments, then how dare you say you have a Sheikh. Then there's nifaaq hypocrisy inside you. If anyone has nisbat that this person is my Sheikh, then he lies if he doesn't have these 4 qualities. If you accept someone as your Sheikh, teacher then if I have a connection then these 4 things, if you have these 4 qualities inside you, first you gave adab manners with the Sheikh, adab comportment, then Aqeedah, you believe in the Sheikh, everything he says everything i will get from my teacher. I will learn from my teacher. Itaa'at, obedience, whatever he says, you obey. Aãmannaa Wa Sadaqnaa. My Sheikh whatever you say I will follow. I will do it. If you don't have these things then how can he be your teacher. Your Sheikh, tell me. Yes he can not to be. Tell me. Have you got a Sheikh now tell me that answer. Now everyone is low in volume. Do dua we also become good mureeds and good students. Brothers. Make a strong connection with your Sheikh. What's the point of having Nifaaq and hypocrisy. So have the  question. Do I have these 4 things inside me? When you have these 4 things, a collection and the Tareeqah ill tell you. The pious predecessors have told us how to strengthen these 4. In dua ask Allah for these 4 qualities in the connection with your teacher in dua. "Allah, make my Aqeedah strong with my Sheikh, Allah make my Nisbat strong with my Sheikh, Allah make my love Adheem with my Sheikh." Do these dua's. In your duas ask Allah. I'm not saying this. Allah's Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that, "Allah grant me the love for you and the love for those people who love you." This is the hadith. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam's dua. SubhaanAllah. That Allah grant me your love and give me the love of those people who have love for you. Those people who can take me to your love. So what is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asking in the dua? Say it loudly. What are we asking for? But we don't have that love. We have love for our wives. Why? Because the wife will say, "don't go to Dhikr, and when he's worn the clothes to go, no no, leave that." "I'll go on Thursday night, okay today I'll sit with you my wife, I'll the leave the majlis." So who's love do you have? With the shop. You don't have love for the Sheikh. With the job. With your career. With your children. "Nahi yaar. Oh we have to go shopping today. Oh we'll do dhikr tomorrow. Next week. Next Thursday night we'll come." So have you got love for dhikr? For your Sheikh? SubhaanAllah. So this is tarbiyyah my friend. Don't become upset with me. Don't be upset with my words. I ask for forgiveness if any of my words are bitter. Forgive me for pestering. I'm not saying this to pester you because all of you are beloved to me. You are beloved colleagues of mine. SubhanAllah. In reality you are all jannati mashaaAllah. All jannati. So a little bit of Tarbiyyah so you can get a good hur. MashaaAllah, first class. I'm trying to improve you. Yes. So that you can get a nice hur in the Hereafter. A nice hur. So the more your niyyah is correct, I'm right aren't I? The more your niyyah is correct, the more In the court of Allah that deed will be accepted. So it is a very extended discussion today, we have to do dhikr, its a very great topic so I wil summarise this. InshaaAllah we will revise it again if we get an opportunity. So do you understand the point. So what's the point? For everything our success, depends on our niyyah. Intention. So Ramadan has also come with this greatest message to us. As I said in the beginning that everything is hinged on our Akhirah. So Ramadan, the summary of Ramadan, when we break the fast, then Allah ta'ala has put the summary of the fast on that pont aswell. Allah ta'ala says that the biggest thing there and the summary of the fast, the whole fast, you fast a day, the fast ends, so Allah ta'ala says after the fast, the biggest thing at the time of Iftar, Allah ta'ala has kept where you get the fruits of the fast, the reward of the fast. There is nothing else Allah ta'ala says, "Allahumma inni laka sumtu, wa alayka tawakkaltu, wa alaa rizqika." That the dua we make at the beginning that when we break the fast, Allah ta'ala this was your fast, make your niyyah correct, Allah I have Imaan, the Imaan you gave to me. "Aãmantu." Allah you gave the Imaan and in your trust i kept this fast, everything is my niyyah Allah that none of this was mine, none of my strength was there in the fast. All the power you gave, the ability you gave, you enabled me to keep the fast. It is your fast. Khaalis for your sake I kept the fast. There was no dieting objective. No other reason. I didn't want to show anybody. I wasn't sharing it with anybody. Allahumma inni laka sumtu, wa bika Aãmantu, wa alayka tawakkaltu, wa alaa rizqika." And Allah the date I am eating, this rizq, you gave to me. This is the fruits and foods that you have given to me. What a great niyyah that you are making, your niyyah is pure now isn't it? When you're breaking your fast. Allah. Nothing of this is mine. My efforts are not there. Everything I did in the day from the begining until now. "Rizqika Aftartu." The food you have given me now Allah, everything is from you. You have distributed. You have given the ability. You have given the power. Everything. Khaalis. Purely. Allah it is my yaqeen that everything I have done for your sake. "Laa shareeka." Nothing is mixed with my intentions." Allah says if you are saying this truthfully, your fast is accepted, raise your hands, whatever dua you make is accepted. SubhaanAllah. Imam Ghazali Rahmatullahi Alayh said, it is such a time, breaking the fast, whatever dua the Mu'min makes, Allah subhaanahu wa ta'ala, all of the doors of the heavens are opened at that time, all the heavens  doors are opened at that time and all Malaaikah angels, the angels of the Arsh, Allah orders all of them, stop your Ibaadah at that time of iftaar. Ajeeb scene at that time. Look at the glory of a Muslim. Look at the status of a Muslim. He who is purifying his niyyah at the time, what a great action, Tazkiyah, when a person goes to a Wali Allah, Sheikh and he things that I want to correct my niyyah and I'm going to my Sheikh for this reason, then the whole universe shakes when he sees that student. He becomes such a great human being, that mureed, you cannot imagine at that time, the nur Allah ta'ala instills into that person. That human being who is going to create, I'm telling you the end of the fast. The culmination of the fast. If I am wrong tell me. At the end because he is correcting his niyyah, "the fast is yours Allah. The eating is for you. You have given me the food. You have given me the water." "Laka sumtu." Everything is you Allah. "Lakal hamd." It is your praise. Praises for you Allah. You have created me. You have made me fast. Nothing is mine. None of the efforts are mine. For your purpose I done it Allah. For your happiness Allah. Your pleasure. For your Radaa I have fasted. Allah becomes so happy What is the value of our fast? Our hungry. Many people, theyre not even that hungry.  They ate 2 paratha's at sehri time. They're not even hungry so what is the situation. Allah says, "Ahh you have made me happy SubhaanAllah. My servant. What a struggle! What striving! Allah says, "universe, freeze right now. Look at this human being. The whole universe freezes. Any angels that are doing Ibaadah, Allah says, "all turn and look at this man. My servant who is correcting his niyyah due to his fast, whatever he asks, you also say Ameen after his dua." SubhaanAllah. At this time your ibaadah becomes one. Everyone universally recite Ameen after this person's dua. Amazing amazing. This is the value of niyyah. I can talk so much about niyyah but InshaaAllah time is short so let's do some dhikr. So the summary is that the fast has also given us this method. If we want to be human beings and sons of human beings, if you want to get success from the fast, first action to do, don't correct your salaah, correct your niyyah. Pray salaah, do Ibaadah, Naare takbir, this and that, but today there is no one to say this. Today there is no one in the world who says correct your niyyah first. When you make your child a Haafidh, when you teach and educate your child and those people the teachers who teach them, first the teachers, our Sheikh said, oh teachers, Asaatidha, first correct your niyyah. When their niyyah is correct, then inside them there will be a consciousness that the children who come to them, to teach them first they will develop the niyyah of the student. They will make them do dua's. Let's do dua. "Allah make us Haafidh. Allah give us the power and make us such Haafidh Allah that we do Amal on this Hifdh and such such small dua's the teacher will make which will develop the brain cells of the students. So there's no Takabbur in the student. Because ilm is dangerous. Imam Ghazali Rahmatullahi Alayh said, most dangerous of all which will take a person into Jahannam is ilm itself." Imam Ghazali Rahmatullahi Alayh said. Remember. Because that rank and status of ilm is so great and when a human being gets ilm, he gets pride inside. Example. Example. When it was told, "do sajdah," then who came into Takabbur? Say SubhaanAllah first. Who came into Takabbur. Who came into pride first? Ah, wretched shaytan. Because he was the biggest Aalim. He was the greatest Aalim at that time.  So what we learn here is that even being a big scholar is not a big achievement because even Shayatan was a big scholar. But his maqaak due to his ilm, he had a high level, same way, every aalim, scholar has a high level. Say what. Due to is ilm but due to what. Due to pride, he? He falls into the trap of Shaytan. This is the trap. So what is the learning? Niyyah. Intention of the human being. Every footstep, correct your niyyah. Because when a person develops something inside of him. Allahu akbar. Then first thing what comes into that person? Kibr. Pride. I am this. I have learnt this. I have got this knowledge. But SubhaanAllah Tazkiyah, purification is so great that the more higher you go in Tazkiyah, you lower yourself. Humility. I'm nothing. I'm nothing. Please please. You want me to do dua. No no. Astaghfirullah. I am nothing. I'm worthless.  When he's sat on the prayer mat, I have got a fast. "If Hadhrat sahib didn't say to me that go and host dhikr, you wouldn't even see me today." So the learning of the today. This is the reason that Tazkiyah purification, it lowers you, humility. That is not Tazkiyah if it doesn't lower you. That is not Tazkiyah if it doesn't teach you picking up the shoes of other people. Yes if your hands are not going to the shoes of other people, then there's no Tazkiyah, no purification. That's the difference. So everything, our success hinges on what? Niyyah. Intention. When your intention is for the Hereafter, then your every actions, will he based, every one of your actions, from the smallest of actions. Allahu akbar. Because that person, he has done such a good deed, that even if he comes, he smiles and says, "how are you?" That smiling of yours and when you meet. There are 2 types of meeting. "How are you? Theek hai? Are you okay? That's it isn't it? Yes. How are you? Alhamdulillah. "Khairiyet hai?" "Are you okay?" With a smile. The angels will record the smile from his lips. They will start kissing his lips. That you have earnt the Hereafter because he has got to that stage of the Hereafter now. So his niyyah become so great and such a fantastic intention that even his smiling and laughing, he puts, he puts his niyyah for the Hereafter. That I'll smile and meet people and it will make my Hereafter there is no loss for me if I smile and meet people. And he doesn't even know there are my enemies. Are they my enemies or are they my friends. And he sits them down with love and he keeps on looking at those people  and smiles at them and he looks at them. Why. Because he wants to make his Akhirah. Hereafter. Even if there is any enemy. A person who is against him. But he will not have friction against them. Yes one time. When it is regards to the Hereafter. When its based on the deen. When its haraam in the deen. Then you'll have to see his anger in regard to haraam. Then his anger will not be suppressed at the time. When the person makes halal haraam, then there it is difficult for a person to smile. Then the system of smiling doesn't run at that time. Then at that time alhamdulillah, because it is Allah ta'ala's deen which is in danger. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam's deen in danger. Then he becomes a fantastic person. Then MashaaAllah you should see the shine and sparkle of that person. But when it is regards to being good with people. Then he lowers himself. Hadhrat Ali KaramAllahu Wajhah Radiyallahu Anhu,  how great a person he was and he showed both sides. Both sides. And when he was about to hit him and he spat on him and then he spat back. And he said that, when if was regards to Allah then if I was to show you that what would've happened to you. But because enough spat on me, now its my nafs that has come infront. So I have forgiven you. Go. Then he was underneath him and he was his enemy. His sworn enemy. He was about to beat him. Then they said, "Ali, why ddi you step back and let him off?" And he said, I stepped back for this reason that for Allah's sake I was clashing with you  because you had enmity with Allah. You had disrespect for Allah. You dishonoured Allah's Sunnah and the Shariah. But why did you step back. Why did you not beat him. He said for this reason that you spat on me and then my anger came and mixed in that and our job is that we look at our enemies with smile. He said "Ali is this the case?" He said yes. He said "oh, can I have friendship with you. Please teach me how to recite the kalimah, shahaadah. And my enmity with you is finished." And he became a Muslim. SubhaanAllah So this is the smile of the Wali's of Allah and they create love for even their enemies. Hadhrat sahib also teach me that dhikr. Is this not the case? Yes. So this is all everything hinges on the human beings niyyah. Allah's Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,  "when the niyyah is corrected and purified then everything will be corrected and purified." Who taught us this? Ramadan is revising this to us and teaching us this. So when you dua then correct your niyyah's at the end. That's why my brothers. Ramadan will dissappear after that MashaaAllah. It's a guest. Theres only a few days left but we after Ramadan aswell have to stay alive after Ramadan. May Allah give you a long life and according to these teachings, live your life, whatever you do, pray salaah, fast, meet people, teach children, eduacte children but first and foremost, connect your niyyah to Allah that Allah this action that I am doing, say it from your mouth 3 times, oh Allah this action that I am doing it is to please you Allah. It is to get your Radaa. SubhaanAllah. Oh Allah I am giving water to this person so I can give you pleasure. I have no connection with this person despite his wives, children and blood relatives, even those people I have a connection with, oh Allah for your pleasure. You have a connection as I said to you. Everything that you do, it will develop your fikr for the Hereafter. You are going to your shop. To your business place. Allah I have to go there. I have to earn but I am going for this reason for this person, because I want to please you Allah To please you I'm going to work. I'm going for the Hereafter Allah. This is the reason I'm going. I'm not going for my dunya. Not for the dunya. I'm going to earn your pleasure. There was a Wali Allah that came, a pious elder and he met his mureed, that "why have you made this window opening in your wall? What is the reason?" Look at how he did Tarbiyyah. The WaliAllah. To his student. He said, "Hadhrat I made it for this reason because there was heat inside this room and you were to come here so I thought that I don't want you to get the heat." He had love. The student for his teacher. This is called love. The mureed. So he left his ease and looked at the ease of his Sheikh. He said that I thought I made holes and I made an opening in the wall so that the wind can come so that my Sheikh does not get the heat. SubhaanAllah. Intensive heat. "What a great action. Good action you've done, my student very good action you have done," the Sheikh said. "But "um my student you've made the opening for the wind but if you had another niyyah ontop of this, that the Adhaan for salaah, with ease you could've heard the Adhaan so that I can hear the Adhaan for the salaah. Then you would've obtained both things at the same time. SubhaanAllah. So the wind was to come. Or course. But with the Akhirah, if you attached it to the Akhirah, the call to the prayer, the Adhaan, I could've heard it and easily it would've come into my room and this also would've come, the fikr-e-Akhirah. Your action. So brothers the summary of today, the learning is that whatever action you do, if you want to teach children, if you want to be a doctor, engineer, even there you should do such. Our Islam doesn't stop you, Doctor saahib if you've become a doctor, then make the niyyah to become a doctor. If you want to be an engineer then make the niyyah strong. SubhaanAllah technology. Look after the Internet. Make the niyyah at that time that everything i'll do, technology, dunya, is to give benefit to the Makhluq, to the creation of Allah. There is no sin if you have the intention to take money from that. Some people say, why are you getting a salary. You're teaching children, why are you taking a salary. No no. This is not the case. His niyyah is this. His intention is this that I am teaching for the sake of Allah's pleasure. I am teaching for the sake of Allah's pleasure. Allah ta'ala hasn't prevented you to take a salary, a doctor, a Mawlana is taking a reward, salary. He is not earning dunya. He is not doing it for the sake of dunya. He said, Allah im doing these actions for the sake of your deen, ilm, there is no personal link or attachment for me in this. So 2 things Allah ta'ala announces for that person. In the dunya he gets elevation with the fadl of Allah and in the Hereafter he will also get the reward. SubhaanAllah. Due to that niyyah. Every action in your life, from A to Z, whatever you do as a human being, that from a loud announcement in your heart, Allah, for your radaa, for your pleasure I'm doing this so that you are happy. No other objective. For your Radaa I'm going to my shop. Tijaarah, I'm doing for your sake. I am serving my children and I am getting food for my wife and children for your pleasure. Not for my happiness but for your Radaa I am doing all these actions. So this is today's sabak. Lesson from Allah ta'ala, correct our niyyah, the whole Ramadan then will be corrected and then after fast you'll do the dua won't you, when you break the fast. This correction of the niyyah. Look at the rewards Allah ta'ala gives. Every dua of yours will become accepted. So for this reason do this dua after Ramadan "oh Allah this Ramadan", what a great dua im telling you, I'm teaching you now. SubhaanAllah. That this Ramadan Allah, the other Ramadans after that in those Ramadans and all the other alhamdulillah every breath of my life, whatever dua's I have asked. Allah all those duas Allah please accept. All those dua's will become accepted. Alhamdulillah. All dua's will become accepted. Whatever dua you have asked before. Dua is such a thing that never will it be that it won't be accepted. Totally. Dont even imagine that the dua you have made and is not accepted. That definitely you will see the enjoyment. On person Allah will call on the day of judgement. "yes tell me." Allah will say, "did you do dua. " he will say "yes Allah i did many dua's then many times. "Then?"Sometimes it was accepted, sometimes it wasn't accepted and I used to feel upset." The human being will speak the truth here. He won't speak a lie in the Hereafter. Allah says now let me show you something and say, "here this your palace, your hur, your wife, this jannah is yours, these gardens for you." He will keep on looking, keep on looking. Allah I didn't do any Amal. Allah will say, you did these A'amaal. That dua you made, this was the Amal that you did. SubhaanAllah. Oh my servant. I compensated you. You asked for dirty things. Give me this house. Give me this car. Give me that. You were asking for those things of the dunya. I didn't like those things that I wanted to give to you. So I protected those things and your dua's were accepted. I promised you. واستجب Allah ta'ala says, I said to you ask dua's and I will accept them. "Allah i have a request. Allah i made a big mistake. Allah, today if only all the dua's , if they were rejected in the dunya and I got those in the Hereafter. This is the case. May Allah swt make us all a good and strong Muslim. Ameen. Okay come let's close eyes and do Muraqabah dhikr.
